Welcome to Year 3!


The class teacher for 3PB is Mrs Bentley and the teaching assistant is Miss Wood. Should you need to speak to us for any reason, please wait until the end of the school day. We are unable to help parents in the morning before school but we are more than happy to speak to you at the end of the day. If you do not collect your child from school and so are unable to catch us at the end of the day, you can either leave a message with the office if it is urgent or if the question is not urgent you can use the class email -


PE will be taken by Mr Ellis and will take place on a Wednesday.

The children will need indoor PE kit - white T shirt, navy shorts, trainers/ pumps.

If the weather is suitable then the PE lesson will take place outside. Children can bring tracksuit bottoms/ jogging bottoms and a sweatshirt to wear over their usual kit.

Earrings cannot be worn in PE so need to be removed at the beginning of the lesson or at home if your child is unable to do their own. If you are thinking of letting your child have their ears pierced please remember they will not be allowed to do PE until they are able to remove their earrings/ studs. This can mean they miss up to 6 weeks of the PE curriculum in some cases.

The class will also do an additional session during the week so it would be useful to have a PE kit in everyday.


SWIMMING at East Manchester Leisure Centre

Year 3 will be swimming in the Summer Term. More information will be sent out on this nearer the time.




Homework will usually be given on a Friday to be handed in on a Wednesday.

The emphasis with homework is to ensure that it is handed in on time and complete. Please help to remind your child to hand in their book on Wednesday morning at the latest. If you have any photos of your child completing their homework activities, please send them to



Books go home every night and need to be back in school the next day. When you hear your child read please can you put the page number and sign it. This means that we will be able to change their book as soon as they have read their book as long as part/ all of it has been read to an adult. They must have their reading record signed to say they have read their book before they can change it. They are allowed to change their books as soon as their record has been signed to say it has been read. All children at Fairfield Road should try to read at least 3 times per week.

Snacks at playtime

Snacks are no longer provided for the children once they are in Juniors. If your child is hungry by playtime please feel free to send in a healthy-eating snack. They will have the whole of morning playtime to eat it in (15 mins). You can also order semi-skimmed milk for their play time snack - please speak to the ladies in the office for more details on this.

Sale Sharks Visit


We have been incredibly lucky to have Sale Sharks in school throughout the Autumn Term. Some children have been to watch a game at the AJ Bell as well as all children learning how to play Tag Rugby and completing workbooks on healthy eating. They had a great time!


We also did a fantastic set of projects about Sale Sharks and I was so impressed at the quality of work we received. The children did a fantastic job and the players, coaches and management staff at Sale have been so impressed with the amount of work the children have put in.


We have finished off the term with an exciting visit from Marc Jones and Curtis Langdon who play for Sale. The children interviewed them and found out lots of really interesting information about what it takes to reach such a high level in sport. The children asked some fantastic questions and made the school proud with their fantastic behaviour and thirst for learning.


Although all of the projects were great, we did promise to pick some winners. Some children won prizes from Sale for their fantastic projects:

Olivia - 1st Prize

Louie M - 2nd Prize

Elin - 3rd Prize

Louie T - 4th Prize


Well done 3PB! We are so proud of you and a special well done to our winners!
